Make it a “book and bake” time with young friends or children. They’ll love baking carrot treats and reading Curious George The Perfect Carrot to double the fun. 

Check out all things rhubarb by those who know it best—Minnesotans! You’ll find breads, cobblers, crisps and of course--a wonderful strawberry rhubarb pie
